Welcome home to us!

Skiing for the whole family.

Järvsöbacken is perfect for the family who wants fantastic skiing within easy reach. With a motorway nearly all the way it’s easy to get here and even the train station is in the middle of the village.
Järvsö is extremely snow-sure thanks to it having one of Europe’s most modern snow canon systems. We can produce 57 600 cubic meters of snow each day with the right conditions. This is the same as 5 760 lorry loads! We are proud of that.
Children have a special place in Järvsö – they are namely our VIP guests.  No one is more important here than children. That is why we devote our efforts in developing the children’s areas, make it easier to start skiing and have fun at the same time.

Järvsöbacken – children’s best

Children are our guests of honour. That’s why we have large children’s areas with travelators, three easy button lifts and three easy, wide slopes.

The lifts are within easy reach from the ski rentals and ticket sales. Our nice staff will help you with the ski lift.
We prepare every morning amusing and challenging courses with smaller jumps and bumps. These are usually the children’s favourites.

  • Free skipass 0-7 years
  • Children’s Snow-riders you can lend

  • Barbecues are lit every day
  • Children’s activities every afternoon

On 21st March 1937 at exactly 13.00 the grand opening was performed by the chairman of Järvsö municipal board, Mr Jon Hanson. Järvsöbacken was declared open.

Ski-school

Taking part in a skiing lesson is both fun and an experience. You can make new friends and learn to ski at the same time. 

We have different groups that suit everybody, from the youngest at 3-years old to the oldest who have skied all their life but wish to test the carving technique. Instruction is held either in a group or as a private lesson. A private instructor can also be hired for a group of friends.

The new hotel, Bergshotellet, is situated right by the southern slopes. Even Järvsö Stugby is situated perfectly for the family that needs some extra space. Here you can ski right up to the hotel and the cottages.

Järvsö is extremely snow-sure thanks to it having one of Europe’s most modern snow canon systems. We can produce 57.600 cubic meters of snow each day with the right conditions. This is the same as 5.760 lorry loads! We are proud of that.

There is a lot of events and happenings going on in Järvsöbacken – every day there is something; ski-school, theatres, snowmobile for children, competitions, night skiing and more!

Rental – Shop – Workshop

Rental – alpine, snowboard and cross-country skiing

We are in close proximity to the lifts. We have a comprehensive assortment of skis, snowboards, telemark, ski boots, helmets and everything else you may need when skiing.

You can always collect your equipment after 15.00 (3am) the day before your ski rental starts so that you can try out your ski equipment in good time before the ski lifts open the next morning.

Our aim is to quickly and as individually as possible find the right equipment for the whole family, so that you can enjoy long and pleasant days on the slopes.

Opening hours
Ski rental is open every day between 09.00 and 16.30
Tuesdays and Thursdays between 17.30 and 21.00

Extended opening hours week 7 and 8 until 18.00 (6pm) so that you can collect your equipment the day before.

Tip before your visit!
• Check your boot size (preferably Winter boots).
• Your height and weight.
• The queues are shorter before 09.30 and after 11.00.

Shop

Skis, helmets, goggles and lots more. It is no coincidence that the staff hear daily that they do a good job, both from their bosses and from thousands of guests. You get more than you pay for in the form of service, years of experience and a love of skiing.
Our staff have tested all the equipment we sell.

Workshop

Ski-waxing, edge and base grinding and normal repairs.
